Benjamin Harrison 23rd president 1889-1893
This is believed to be the oldest known recording of any U.S. President.
It was recorded on an Edison wax cylinder sometime around 1889.
"As president of the United States, I was present at the first Pan-American congress in Washington D.C. I believe that with God's help, our two countries shall continue to live side-by-side in peace and prosperity. . . Benjamin Harrison."

Subject: And a hello to you too
Another recording that purports to be 'the oldest recording of a US president'. (I think there's a couple on here that say that actually). Anyways, Harrison doesnt really say much (thankfully, he doesnt say anything about how wonderful Edison is) and basically says the equivilant of what today means, "Hey ya!"
